    Hello World,

    I have a Teac 5.25" Floppy drive which supports 1.2MB disks and was wondering if anybody here could advise me which Floppies to buy. Do I need to look out for a particular number of sides/density and/or is there a brand/make somebody knows to work?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't really know anything about the X68000 specifically, but if you say your drive supports 1.2MB disks then you need High Density floppies as opposed to Double Density. And sidedness doesn't matter. Really, all 5.25 floppies are double sided. As for brand, I've had good luck with Verbatim on my Apple IIe. But I'm sure it shouldn't matter much.
    Sorry for the lackluster reply, but I imagined some reply would be better than none.
